How and When VMware Classes Meet
All of our VMware course lectures are delivered “Live Online” using Adobe Connect and VMware’s View Horizon (VDI) that works similarly to a remote desktop application. This allows us to teach anyone from anywhere around the world and interact “live” in real time with the class. 

Each class is:

  • Recorded and will become available shortly after each lecture is competed, giving the ability to makeup or repeat any lessons
  • We also provide a virtual environment to complete the required lab work, giving the ability to play and practice with VMware throughout the length of the course 
  • Our “Live Online” lectures meet 4 days a week for 4 weeks from 6pm EST to 9pm EST. The typical format is 2 weeks of lecture – one week off – then two weeks on for 5 total weeks
  • We also give 3 additional weeks of 24/7 access to the environment to complete additional lab work or repeat labs and lessons to better prepare you for the VCP exam
